Took me until Halls 2 to realize I didn't even put hatred in.
Had 20 lit res for halls 3 which made me go at a snails pace with off screen arcers everywhere.
Recurve bow wouldn't drop until late halls 3. Used a shitty 38 top end composite.
Ended the race with my mirror and 5 exalts.
I think I need a looooong break from racing. My mind is obviously too fucked to do this well anymore.
Important safety tip: No matter how nice the DPS, an AXE dun work with Glacial Hammer. Also, the worst time to be reminded of this is when fighting The Brute. =>[.]<=

If you QUIT, yet linger on the PoE forum, it is clear you have nowhere better to be.
got almost to lvl 5 in first zone while looking for exit, jaja
Almost lvl 7 in rasping while searching for freezing chamber, great. Ppl were at diabolic crypt and i was killing rukuku.
And then after 3 zones I've understand-ed why people don't pick templars often and don't pick him at all compared to scions pick count. Killing brutus as templar was 1000 times harder than killing him as witch (lol, witch is the easiest one). Dumped all my currency to roll hp regeneration, and as final alteration gone, I've got 1.6 hp per second at gloves. 1 min afk and i am ready to got hit again for 60% of hp. And i didn't kill any of his skeletons ofc :) At this moment vrom was in inner 2
Instantly dead in inner 1 and still 10th templar, almost no one really playing it.
Spent almost 10 minutes exploring all of the first 2 zones, and had no upgrades to the unique starter corroded blade until 12. Rolled an 80 damage tri-elem bastard sword at 12 and a godly poleaxe at 18, but between bad zone density before halls and those "insert maphack here" early zones, i hit grav with 10 seconds to go. Managed to take off all his es in those 10 seconds, pretty frustrating. Literally needed another 30 seconds tops.
Also would have been nice to have another 5~ minutes in halls with this beast:
Edit: Also holy shit at the desync and server hitching lately, seriously wtf. Having to /oos multiple times per zone is ridiculous.
